Antiracist Pedagogy in the Waldorf Classroom

with Monique Marshall


Sorry the course is full

“Never Too Young” is Monique’s mantra. She believes in the importance of creating

age-appropriate learning opportunities around multicultural themes that spring from

the naturally inquisitive world of our youngest learners in schools. Monique will

invite us to think about how we as teachers can support students’ conversations

around race, class, gender, and other social issues. This 3-part workshop series will

invite teachers to explore three crucial aspects of equity work for Waldorf teachers:

 • Identity Exploration: Why we, the adults in the classroom, need to know


 • Never Too Young: Understanding racial identity development and the need to

begin anti-bias, anti-racist work in early childhood classrooms

 • The Anti-bias Lens: Infusing Waldorf pedagogy with proactive equity practice

Monique will share examples of what Anti-bias, Anti-racist work with children in our

schools can look like. She will offer a space for dialogue about often silenced topics.

Participants will be introduced to instructional models that tap into the power of

story to help both children and their teachers understand themselves and others in

authentic ways. Participants will experience community-building activities that can

be directly and immediately implemented in classrooms. Participants will leave with

tools to add to their own “best practices in diversity, equity, and inclusion” toolboxes.

Come join us!
